    Translation: not correct.

    First of all, she claimed he warned the British they weren't going to take our arms away; then she said he warned the Americans (as if the colonists were American) that they weren't going to take our arms away;

    Secondly, Paul Revere did not warn the British they weren't going to take our arms away;

    Thirdly, she said, "he was a courrier, he was a messenger, part of his ride was to warn the British that we we're already there." Except that his role as a courrier/messenger didn't include riding to warn the British about anything. That was the result of him unfortunately getting captured by the same British Palin thinks Revere rode to warn. Not to mention, his mission that night was to ride to Lexington to deliver a message to Adams and Hancock, which he completed without warning the British about anything. It was only after he completed that mission that he was captured.

    She certainly has been better coached, and speaks much better than before... but it is difficult to hide how utterly stupid she really is.

    Sure she did. Are you going to go against the Director of the Paul Revere House... but that would be silly...

    "Revere's assignment that night was to go to Lexington to warn Samuel Adams and John Hancock that British troops were moving in that direction from Boston," explained Kristin Peszka, director of interpretation and visitor's services at the Paul Revere House, which Palin visited Thursday.

    It was an extremely complicated situation which she sort of regurgitated in a garbled way," Boston University's Brendan McConville said.

    "He didn't warn the British," said James Giblin, author of "The Many Rides of Paul Revere." "That's her most obvious blooper."

    To the source: In a 1798 letter, Revere wrote that after being captured by British officers during the midnight ride, he told them "there would be five hundred Americans there in a short time for I had alarmed the Country all the way up." Does that mean he warned the British? Not exactly.

    "He wasn't really warning the British when he was a captive," said "Rides of Paul Revere" author Giblin. "He was just, in a way, boasting about the capabilities of Americans. 'You don't know what you're going to be up against,' etc. He was playing the patriot even there. He did maybe inflate the American strength, but that was to throw the British off guard. He was propagandizing, really."

    I believe someone was just quoting an expert ...
    ... he warned them, "that I had alarmed the country all the way up, that their boats were catch'd aground, and I should have 500 men there soon..."

    I think that the Director of the Paul Revere House is the best source, and that person does not agree...

    Are you a expert on Paul Revere's ride or a American Historian? The experts disagree with you, so please explain why you would be correct and not the experts. Did your read the article?

    And he absolutely wasn't riding to warn the British about anything. Poor Palin cultists, defending her hopelessly.
